Guess what? Dexter's Laboratory is my all time favorite TV show and cartoon, while James Cameron's AVATAR movie is my all time favorite movie. My favorite female character from Dexter's Laboratory is Lee Lee, the Asian friend of Dee Dee, Dexter's sister, while Jake Sully, Sam Worthington's 10 foot tall blue alien/human hybrid hero of James Cameron's AVATAR is my main blue man!
Well, Muffy0616, I have a dream project or so for me to pursue, and that dream project is called "The Princess of Shangara", a massive, elaborate, mythic, multi-part(?), theatrical big screen, Dexter's Laboratory/The Powerpuff Girls crossover(?) and/or Dexter's Laboratory/The Powerpuff Girls/Samurai Jack/etc.-inspired(?) epic animated feature film project which would be set in a world where dinosaurs still roam, dragons rule the skies, and mystical god-like spirit beings given human or animal form known as 'avatars' (actually derived from an Ancient Hindu/Sanskrit word from India meaning "a god's coming to earth in human or animal form) keeps balance between the worlds of flesh, spirit, and even nature, for good or ill, mainly centered on and revolved around Lee Lee, the Asian friend of Dee Dee, Dexter's sister, and her incredible and even emotional hero's journey (with Dexter, Dee Dee, and her black friend Mee Mee accompanying Lee Lee) as well as her epic battles against the forces of Mandark, the evil Dark Lord of the Avatars, who according to an anicent prophecy, Lee Lee is destined to destroy.
"The Princess of Shangara" would mainly use Traditional 2D hand drawn animation, sometimes combines with CGI digital production techniques (and especially the Deep Canvas process used on Disney's Tarzan, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, and Treasure Planet), but also in a visual graphic character design and animation art style that would marry and would be based on and inspired by a whole variety of visual and graphic design styles and look, including the character design and animation art visual graphic styles of the earleir, 1990s, Genndy Tartakovsky-involved seasons of Dexter's Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls, the ones used in the Ego Trip TV special, Samurai Jack, and the original 2D hand drawn version of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and even the high Chinese-influence visual and graphic style used in Disney's Mulan, etc.
"The Princess of Shangara" would also be made in a 2.35:1 Cinemascope (or Panavision) widescreen aspect ratio.
As for the cartoon dinosaurs featured in "The Princess of Shangara" they have to be convincing, believable, and (especially in anatomy and behavior) accurate to the latest scientific knowledge from dinosaur experts around the world, especially during this 21st century, there would be a lot of research and attention to detail, if not a whole lot.
As for the music score for it, it should be an epic cinematic music score that should incorporate unusual and exotic, ethnic instrumental and vocal musical sounds from around the world, as well as some electronic synthesizers and computers, into a full traditional orchestral score. If so, every culture encountered in "The Princess of Shangara" should have its very own musical culture and association.
(Back to you, Muffy0616, based on what I'm saying about the music score for The Princess of Shangara, what would it sound like and what would it remind you of?)
As for the sound work, I think Skywalker Sound or the like should handle such and even a theatrical 7.1 channel audio mix.
The other people behind The Princess of Shangara, which I intend to be my great epic masterpiece, and besides myself, would not only combine old time experience with gifted young talent, but would also include people who used to work on Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, and the like, and especially the great lights of especially Disney and non-Disney feature and TV animation during the '90s, etc.
And like Disney's The Lion King, The Princess of Shangara would not only be considered to be as much an epic film as it is an animated feature film, but would also fit the dictionary defintion of an epic animated feature film that is as much a mythic epic tale as it is an animated cartoon feature film.
A thousand apologies for typing such a long comment, but, even if every frame and detail has to be perfect and fresh or so, and even if it have to be well thought and with a better and superbly crafted epic script and plot than even cartoons of today or so, "The Princess of Shangara" is gonna be cool and awesome and great and epic! Or would it?
P.S. In closing, I'll show a piece of artwork that I did:
